A few jerking episodes with 2003 Murano's engine

Q We have a 2003 Nissan Murano with 102,000 miles that we purchased new. Three times in the past year the car suddenly started running extremely rough. The engine jerked and bucked for 5 to 10 minutes. While this was happening the service engine soon (SES) light was blinking on and off, but it has never once recorded or stored a fault code. Each time this happened, we pulled over, turned the car off and let it sit for a few minutes. When we restarted the car, it ran just fine again. The first time this happened, the dealership ran a diagnostic but couldn't find anything. They recommended the 90,000-mile scheduled maintenance, which included new plugs, wires and a tuneup. I did this and thought the problem was solved. But it has happened two more times since then. Without a specific fault code, I really hate to take it to the dealership and have them start replacing parts in attempt to find the problem.
